The Adams Theater's mission is to create a long-lasting multi media arts institution that fosters community engagement through a diverse range of programming. Collaborating extensively with independent artists and other cultural organizations in the Berkshires, the Adams Theater celebrates creative partnerships and promotes cultural dialogues.
Built as a movie theater in 1937 to replace the burned-down Atlas Theater in downtown Adams, MA, the Adams Theater was a cultural anchor that connected generations of local residents until its closure in 1967.
Adams Theater LLC purchased the building at 27 Park Street in Adams on May 12, 2021. Its goal is to restore the 12,443 square-foot theater complex, cultivate downtown activities, and become a year-round arts and performance venue.
The Adams Theater Presents, Inc. was formed in October 2023 as a non-profit organization. It is the sole presenting organization for arts and community programs at 27 Park Street in Adams.
